The House Judiciary Committee plans to hold public hearings as soon as October on President Donald Trump’s alleged role in hush-money payments to two women during the 2016 election, a committee aide familiar with the matter told NBC News.

The push by House Democrats, first reported by The Washington Post, is designed to highlight a case in which they believe prosecutors would have enough evidence to charge Trump with a crime if not for the Justice Department policy against indicting a sitting president, the aide said. The hearings are part of the panel’s investigation into whether to recommend articles of impeachment against Trump, according to another committee aide.

House Democrats have been blocked so far from presenting many key witnesses in the Russia investigation. But because the payments to former Playboy model Karen McDougal and adult-film star Stormy Daniels occurred before Trump became president, Democrats believe they will be able to compel the testimony of key witnesses without the delays they have experienced in the Russia matter, the first aide said.

Oooh, tricky. 

For her part Daniels says she is more than ready to testify.

Porn star Stormy Daniels said Tuesday she’s gung ho about testifying before Congress amid revelations that House Democrats are gearing up to investigate President Trump’s role in salacious hush payments issued to her and another woman before the 2016 election.

“I have no fear of being under oath because I have been and will be honest. Bring it!” tweeted Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford.

As we have seen in the past Daniels is not exactly shy about sharing her experiences with Donald Trump.

Fingers crossed that we might hear the term “tiny mushroom” mentioned during this testimony.

    5 Crazy Details From New Book On Trump and His Infantile Dependence on Fox News — the ‘Gorilla Channel’

    Donald Trump’s Beloved Gorilla Channel Isn’t Real—Except That It Is

    In Audience of One: Donald Trump, Television, and the Fracturing of America, New York Times TV critic James Poniewozik examines the symbiotic relationship between Donald Trump and the small screen, explaining how Trump learned to control TV—and what happened when TV began to control him.

    …..Fox & Friends in the Trump era morphed into a morning children’s show for the president of the United States. Kids’ programs often hold the attention of their distractible audience by addressing them through the fourth wall. Dora the Explorer asked kids to help her chase off Swiper the Fox: “Say, ‘Swiper, no swiping!’” Elmo became the most popular Muppet on Sesame Street by talking to toddlers directly. The local hosts of Romper Room would pretend to look through a “magic mirror” and see the children in the home audience, calling them out by name.

    Fox & Friends applied that formula to an audience of one. Its hosts offered Trump encouragement, flattery, and advice. When he tweeted, his tweets—many mornings, in perfect sync with the show’s topics—would materialize on a giant video wall. One morning in January 2017, the show put a video feed of the White House onscreen and asked Trump to flash the lights on and off if he was watching. The producers added an effect of the lights flickering, a “TV trick” the hosts later acknowledged.

    But for Trump, the childhood illusion—that your favorite show is as aware of you as you are of it—became real. Fox & Friends was Donald Trump’s magic mirror.

    The president was the show’s audience, its subject, its publicist, and its virtual fourth host. His morning tweets set the focus of the show, which often scrambled to keep up.

    other ‘serving suggestions’:

    “I was struggling to keep my gaze no higher than his forehead, otherwise it was too difficult not to laugh out loud.”

    “I tried to convince him that in-the-shower fun was best in order to complete the session without being overcome by the body odor.”

    What’s more precious to the orange fraud than his vanity…?
